Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£100k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Investing is a journey that I am only 3 years into. I mostly invest in small caps that I think have interesting characteristics, it could be mommentum, it could be value it could be quality. Anything where I think I can make 20% return within a year. I've learnt a lot in 3 years and have adapted along the way, I expect to continue to learn and adapt my strategy for some time to come.

One of the features I have always loved about Stockopedia is the Fantasy Funds capability. I know that you can run fantasy portfolios on lots of sites but I think Stockopedia does them particularly well although its surprising to me sometimes how underused they are.I personally find the insight into how other people are investing and trading in their portfolios (real or not) to be…

Hi All, I'm pretty disappointed in my investment in FairFX (LON:FFX) . All the updates seem to have been good, the direction of the company seems right, ok so Brexit and other things provide some headwind, but does that really justify the drop in the SP? My current holding is well underwater, beyond my normal tolerance, but I am having trouble letting go of it…

I held Keywords Studios (LON:KWS) from shortly after they floated until about 2 weeks ago when I cut it from my portfolio as the current draw-down started to happen. It has felt overpriced for a while and so I didn't need much encouragement to get out. I still have a lot of regard for the company though and have been tracking its price relentlessly downwards…

Hi, I've posted a few similar challenges over the years for various stocks. The general thinking is that when i'm looking at a company I should be looking for the one reason not to buy it rather than the positive reasons that confirm my bias. I've been looking at Stock Spirits (LON:STCK) for a while, ever since I started making the occasional trip to Poland…

Hi all, I'm interested in which alerts people are using on Stockopedia. I think we all probably know how to set up and get value from a Price Greater than or Price less than alert but there are a huge range of options, many of which I can't actually get to work how I think they should. If anyone from Stockopedia reads this, I would…

Hi Herbie, Thanks, I will check out zScaler. I’m vaguely aware of them but don’t know them in depth so will check them out. Cheers Carey

I’ve spent the past 2 days in meetings with people from ServiceNow and I am going to meet some of their executive team in the last few days of April. I really can’t say enough good things about them as a company and their technology strategy. That doesn’t always make a company a good investment but in this case I think they really have a…

Two sales from the Fund today. I sold my entire holdings of:Elektron Technology (LON:EKT) - I managed to buy this at 45p a share which seems to have been the high point. There was an inline with market expectations update on Feb 5th but in recent weeks the SP has been heading steadily south. Potentially its a buying opportunity to average down as I still…

Today I added Atlassian ( £TEAM ) to the fantasy portfolio. Its a stock that I have wanted to buy for a while but have never manged to pull the trigger just because the eye watering PE scared the life out of me. Currently the 12 month rolling PE Ratio sits at 115 according to the stock report ! In the meantime, while I have…

Hi Gus, Thanks for your post, I wasn't aware of those investment trusts but its striking how their 2 year charts match the 2 year chart of my Fund. I will certainly have a look at them and see what their top investments are. In many cases, trusts like that go for the tech superpowers like Apple, Facebook and Alphabet which are stocks I try…
